Breakthrough with 3.0.8 kernel compiled in Dpup. I downloaded wuxiandianzi 3.1.0 lupu 525 and it booted X with intel driver. So...the 3.X kernel is not the reason for my intel driver failure. Then I checked the i915.conf file and it has a long command:
Code:
 install i915 /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install fbcon; [ -e /tmp/.i915_modeset_0 ] && /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install i915 modeset=0 $CMDLINE_OPTS || ( [ -e /tmp/.i915_nomodeset ] && /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install i915 $CMDLINE_OPTS || /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install i915 modeset=1 $CMDLINE_OPTS )

I copied that conf file to my woof build and bingo. I can boot to the X with intel driver loaded:
Code:
Linux Kernel: 3.0.8
Operating System: Dpup Exprimo-5.X.10
Window Manager: jwm
X Server: Xorg
Driver used: intel

acpitool -s does not suspend anymore:
Quote:
# acpitool -s
Function Do_Suspend : could not open file : /proc/acpi/sleep.
You must have write access to /proc/acpi/sleep to suspend your computer.

....there isnt sleep file what to call.....
....but echo mem > /sys/power/state does suspend and also waking up is ok.
I changed that to the sleep.sh script and voila....Fn + Zz button suspends to the ram and also wakes up ok.
......frisbee-tray works with new kernel. I am sure many are dissapointed to hear that. It did seqfault with my previous test but with my latest woof build it somehow works. I was already ready to leave Frisbee out. I have however tested sleep.sh script without calling Frisbee after resuming suspend by calling /usr/local/simple_network_setup/rc.network and that enables automatic wireless connection after resume. I wonder if there is anyone who would miss Frisbee if I leave it out ?
It seems I can update scripts to work without it.
Now I need to use this kernel longer to see if I can trace other bugs.
By the way wuxiandianzi kernel does not have ath5k.ko or ath9k.ko wireless modules included, so I had to use ethernet card to get his kernel build lupu525 to connect to the net. But that build already has shown me the way.

Stu90. I suppose so...well...it is fine tuning anyway.
It looks like that arch linux is the only linux distro so far which has fixed acpitool. Acpitool seems to suffer this new kernel naming convention. 3.0.X seems to confuse it and it needs samekind patching to work correctly as in Puppies filemnt, bootmanager and sfs_load. 3.1 kernel should have fix for naming so that it should adress it self as 2.6.39.xx something. I didnt remember to test wuxiandianzi 3.1 kernel and acpitool.
Anyway archlinux acpitool-0.5.1-4 package works. I compiled acpitool from latest source but it wasnt 3.x kernel fixed !!!
It looks like acpitool is not actively supported anymore.

Damn it. Now with new acpitool Vattery seqfaults. Oh well.....

Hi pemasu

Frisbee is good to have available.
The way it is setup at present - is the best so far.
It seems to work well - and is fast.

SNS and Dougals network setup are also good to have.

If I remember correctly Slacko-5.3 has all 3 - nice.

So did klp-006 - another v.nice puppy.

HTH - thanks again - very best regards - Ray

Hmm...sounds like you are not pointing to the right location of booting needed files, like vmlinuz, initrd.gz and squeeze.sfs. Without knowing how you boot, you cant get more spesific answer. But I believe you are not booting correctly.

What works for me is to highlight what I want to copy, but don't do anything else; then go to where I want to paste the highlighted stuff and simultaneously click both the left and right mouse buttons. There are other ways that don't use the mouse at all, but I've forgotten them.

zulhilmi. Ok, you are using full installs and you have grub4dos as bootloader. You have used grub4dosconfig for semiautomatic boot configure creation. menu.lst seems to be created by that config tool.
I am not experienced of full installs. I havent ever installed any Puppy as full install. But I dont see anything wrong with your configuration.
So....I am clueless.

Acpitool. I downloaded acpitool source and patch for 3.0 kernels from archlinux repo. I didnt include battery patch. Voila. Now all works with semipatched acpitool compiled in dpup. Acpitool -s suspends. Vattery-acpitool works without patch and vattery-ibam works. Vattery-ibam is what I need since it accepts the commands to suspend or shutdown when battery state is critical.
So...semipatched acpitool seems to be best compromise so far. I cant get vattery-acpitool source anymore. It was one of those which is lost when puppeee.com entered digital black hole. It was compiled using vala, so the source reading would have been laborous for me anyway. Relief in fact that it is lost, lol.
